The musician behind the project Heavenly Music Corporation is sound designer and musician Kim Cascone, who founded his own label Silent Records around the mid ‘80s.
For “Lunar Phase”, he compiled material composed especially for St. Giga, Japan, a satellite broadcast radio station that transmitted ambient music 24 hours a day, and whose programming was based around the current tidal movements.
The elegant ambient music, spread over seven track, is something special as it merges subtle sample work with soft soaring synthesizers, dub basslines, sounds of nature and effects.
This cd seems be hard to find these days, but sure is worth the troubles tracking down a copy.
